Abstract

Growing out of the traditions of the Antique civilisations, upon
which a Slavism whose spirituality was realised on the Christian
guidelines of the Western Church was consolidated, Croatia
represents a unique civilisational, religious and culturological
combination which, in order to survive, was obliged to have its own
autochthonic means of expression. At times approved of, more
frequently negated, it was, nonetheless, historically confirmed. In
the whirlpools of history, the Croatian lands emerged, and
prevailed, as the steadfast eastern European border of Roman
Catholic Christianity, with the British Isles standing on the western
European border. Geographically located at opposite ends of the
spectrum, there is much that divides these two cultures, but, still, a
number of things that link them.
